Pedestrian & Cyclist Facilities

Pedestrian and cyclist access

To connect community and business centres, the project includes a number of east-west cyclist and pedestrian crossing points along the length of South Road including:

  • Torrens Road
  • Hawker/Hurtle Street
  • A pedestrian and cyclist bridge near Cedar Avenue
  • Outer Harbor rail overpass
  • Port Road
  • Grange Road/Manton Street

A pedestrian and cyclist bridge across the River Torrens, near McDonnell Avenue has been constructed as a separate project by DPTI.

The Outer Harbor Greenway will be carried across South Road and the motorway on the side of the new rail overpass between South Road and Coglin Street. This is in addition to the ramp that connects back to the South Road/McInnes Street intersection.

Linear Park Trail

The Linear Park Trail will be temporarily closed between McDonnell Avenue and South Road from 7pm Monday, 11 June for approximately three months.  The temporary structure which has been in place under South Road and forms part of the Linear Park Trail must be removed, as the potential for high rainfall events during the winter months pose a safety risk.

A map showing the alternative pedestrian and cyclist route is shown over the page and is also available on the cycling journey planner,

From 7pm, Monday, 11 June, for approximately 3 months:

  • The Linear Park Trail will be temporarily closed between McDonnell Avenue and South Road.
  • Works to construct the new, permanent shared use path under South Road, forming part of the Linear Park trail, will continue.
  • Signage will be erected to direct pedestrians and cyclists to alternative routes that will re-connect with the Linear Park Trail.
  • The footpath on the western side of South Road, across Taylor Bridge, will also be temporarily closed during these works.
  • Pedestrians and cyclists travelling from West Hindmarsh should use the McDonnell Avenue pedestrian and cycling bridge to access the Brickworks Marketplace and Ashwin Parade, Torrensville.
  • The footpath on the eastern side of South Road, across Taylor Bridge, will remain open.
